Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists his side have not yet got the Premier League title wrapped up
The runaway leaders head into Saturday’s meeting with Burnley with a 15-point lead at the top of the table.
But Guardiola said: “We have 13 games to play, 39 points. It is not over. We have amazing, tough games to play.”
#PEP: There is 13 games, 39 points to play, we are 15 ahead, It’s not over. We have tough games left to play. We cannot deny and everyone knows how tough it is at Burnley. We have Arsenal, United, Tottenham and Chelsea.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, though, has effectively conceded the title to City, saying: “We have to try to finish second.”
Guardiola also revealed that striker Gabriel Jesus still needs “four or five weeks of rest”.
The Brazilian has been out since suffering a medial ligament injury during the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on New Year’s Eve.
